FORMULA

T(i,j) is given in cases:
Case 1: row 0
T(0,0)=0, T(1,0)=3, and for m>=1,
T(4m2,0)=2m, T(4m1,0)=2m+1, T(4m,0)=2m,
T(4m+1,0)=2m+1.
Case 2: row 1
T(0,1)=3, T(1,1)=2, and for m>=2,
T(4m2,1)=2m1, T(4m1,1)=2m, T(4m,1)=2m+1,
T(4m+1,1)=2m+2.
Case 3: columns 1 and 2
(column 1) = (row 1); (column 2 = row 2).
Case 4: For i>=2 and j>=2,
T(i,j)=1+min{T(i2,j1),T(i1,j2)}.
Cases 14 determine T in the 1st quadrant;
all other T(i,j) are easily obtained by symmetry.


EXAMPLE

T(i,j) for 2<=i<=2 and 2<=j<=2:
4 1 2 1 4=T(2,2)
1 2 3 2 1=T(2,1)
2 3 0 3 2=T(2,0)
1 2 3 2 1=T(2,1)
4 1 2 1 4=T(2,2)
Corner of the array, T(i,j) for i>=0, k>=0:
0 3 2 3 2 3 4...
3 2 1 2 3 4 3...
2 1 4 3 2 3 4...
3 2 3 2 3 4 2...
